Hey guys!! :D I went for the first world premiere by Japan organised in Singapore! It was a really fun,touching and emotional experience that i'll never ever forget. I'm really grateful for the director,cast or anyone that can make this possible, cause you guys made part of my dream come true. Thank you!
I've decided to post a fan report (quite a late one cause other fans have already have their own report). Other than sharing with you guys, i want to jot down this beautiful memory here cause it's just so precious..
For my report I'll use photos/audio/videos that my sis and i took, so no reposting . it took me a loong time25 July 2013, Thursday
Arrival of Sho at Changi airport terminal 1
Originally sources said that Sho will touch down singapore at 5.15pm,but in the late afternoon around 2pm, some people said that the plane will be reaching at 4.40 instead. I panicked straight away cause i will be still in school then.. (i ended up skipping my lecture LOL), so i reached at 4.15 ! The barriers were already up and fangirls (AND some fanboys) were already waiting!
There were people holding banner and someone with a very huge board with Sho's face and "I love you!" ! It's so cute! (Idk if it was I love you, i think it is!)
Mezamashi TV (japanese news) were also there as well, and they interviewed my group.. >< hahas they asked questions like "How will you feel if you see Sakurai-san?" , "Did you made these uchiwa yourselves?" etcetc.. And finally "What do you want to say to Sakurai-san if you see him? " and the 4/5 of us just said "Thank you!!" , so emotional omg ;_;
Anyway we waited for veryyyy long.. lots of false alarms so sometimes everyone will suddenly shout at the wrong person LOL. (mainly because someone mistaken it and everyone followed HHAHHA XD! ) Security was very tight, they made sure our barriers were strongly attached. Policemen and guys in military uniform were everywhere.
Finally around 6~7pm WE SAW THIS REALLY FAMILIAR LOOKING FACE!! IT'S SHO!!! Omgg everyone just started screaming!! ><
He was inside the belt with lots of policemen surrounding him and waved at us! Thought that he will come out straight away but i've forgotten about the checking out process >< took him about 5 minutes?
He was alone.. It was reported that Keiko-san and Kippei-san left via another exit.
So after he came out everyone just started screaming!! He was smiling and waving to everyone!! He wasn't walking fast at all, so im pretty sure he wanted to spend more time there ;_; Anyway he stopped at a point for a short interview and I saw him!! He looks so so much cooler in real life, trust me! Sho also commented on a banner a group of fangirls made, and (according to some fangirls who heard him), he said " Sugoi!! " After that he left in a limousine! He even lowered down the windows to wave at us again!! So kind!! T_T I kinda know why the staff are rushing him.. but everything felt so short!! Anyway i'm really glad that i saw him! The wait and (skipping of lecture) was worth it!
After Sho left, lots of girls were crying really badly. It was such a great moment..26 July 2013, Friday
Sho-kun in Singapore
Apparently he was spotted at the Merlion place. He was wearing a Merlion hat (like those in mascots where you wear over your head) , obviously he had fun there.

International world premiere - Red carpet
Standing right in front of the stage! I reached around 12+, thank you my friends who reached there at 11! You guys are just awesome!
When i reached there , already have around 10+ people waiting.. even though the event starts at 5.
We waited for quite a long time.. Actually i was standing on the left side of the carpet, however around 2pm we suddenly have to move to the right side.(Can you imagine how many people were there already?! When you reach so early and suddenly have to move to somewhere behind.. Thanks to my friends i managed to join them in front, they're really awesome people T_T) Really angry with how the singapore staff did their things, it was all last minute and they're really rude to the fangirls... Since we were there early she said :"You girls shouldn't even be here at this time." How rude!! >:(
Oh well that's another story altogether. (Shall not let myself be angered on such a special day ! ^ ^ )
Around 4pm the place was already packed with fangirls (and some fanboys!) We all have to stand so that people can move in. Thn they started putting up safety barriers around the light area .
I also asked one of the Nazodi staff who was standing in front of me if i can take a photo of his shirt >< He agreed readily !! Anyway it ended up with lots of girls taking photos of his shirt hahah!
During our free time we've decided to write down our letters to Sho-chan,Keiko-chan and Kippei-san!
We were listening to Arashi's songs and writing at the same time. ^^ Btw our letters got passed to the staff who agreed to pass it to them!! Really happy!! I hope Sho-kun read my letter.. ><
Mini uchiwa i brought >< Another one with "いいね" which i didn't take a photo of > < ll
Around 4.30 the camera crew were testing their lightings and speech. Around this time Mezamashi TV was interviewing the fangirls in front of me! (haha my friends actually >< !)
Eh? Don't you think the female reporter looks familiar? :D She's so cute in real life ! Our Singapore MC kept calling her the Pretty lady LOLL!
At that time the Nazodi OST was replaying and replaying @_@ I was hoping they'll play Meikyuu.. and suddenly, they played it!!
We're all so excited, and started Singing Meikyuu together. It was really touching cause it sounded so beautiful.. For the first few seconds of this video
you can hear it, its a fanvid by Zahirah
. Btw guys check our her detailed premiere fan report here
It was a long wait.. Even though it was already 5pm, no informations about Sho's arrival was given out.. :(
Around 6pm, still no sho!! >< ah... was feeling so sad ! :( Kept having this feeling that they couldn't make it..
Suddenly the MC is up to inform us that they will be arriving in 5minutes!!
All the worries i had were gone! >< I'm so excited!!
After the LOOONGEST 5 minutes i've waited, the Nazodi crew is finally out!!
KYA!!! SHO-KUN!!! ;A; omg PRECIOUS!!!! The moment he's up on the stage i was just crying and sobbing.. its my first time crying cause i'm so happy . Tears just flow,really . ; _ ;
Anyway i'll let the video do the talking. Taken by my sister ~!
In case you didn't see, they were stopped in front of the stage for a short interview! Sho was in front of me but i couldn't see him clearly!! >< Disadvantage of being short i guess..
Bouquets of orchid flowers (Singapore's flowers) were presented to them. A young girl actually went up on stage and go to Sho but he directed her to Keiko >< So kind! Soon the two other boys went to Sho-kun and Kippei-san ~ Sho tried carrying the small boy forward for a photo taking but he 'failed' a little ><
It was really a short 8 minutes, despite waiting from 12noon to 6.10pm it was really worth it ! ; w ;27 July 2013, Saturday
International world premiere - After movie's interview
Collection of the ticket was 5-6.30 pm.. (a clash with the red carpet -_-), so i went after the red carpet, which was 6.40pm . Managed to receive my tickets! I went in with my sister.
Was kind of disappointed to find out that my seat is on the 2nd floor (i believe there are 3 floors so i shouldn't be complaining! LOL) , i do wish i'm on the first floor though! >< Cause Sho walked in from there!! Ahh!!!
After we all settle down, the movie started playing! I had a fun time laughing, it was such an amazing film. It's really exciting and definitely worth watching. Visual effects were plainly AWESOME!!! Shall not reveal spoilers here, but this YOU MUST CHECK IT OUT!
After the movie ended, the MC introduced the cast to come in for the interviews!
I don't know if i should write down word for word,cause other people have already translated/posted them. I'll leave the audio here for you if you want to hear Sho's awesome english and.. singlish! :)
LINK TO AUDIO HERE
After the interview ended they took a group photo together >< So the fangirls downstairs were allowed to moved in front.. ii na.. i wonder if they captured the top 2 stories as well? :( I was posing as well!! XD
After the movie ended (around 10 pm +++), I went home straight away.. Couldn't stay up that late or else my parents might start nagging !
All in all it was a wonderful experience that perhaps i can never get again in my life.. Seeing Sho-chan in person, his voice and everything, really is something i'll never forget !!
Thanks for taking your time to read my fan report!! Took me HOURS to upload photos,audio and video,trying to remember some parts, editing the post etc >< Hope you enjoyed!
